fixed the mortgages and that's a big part of the problem. >> you worked closely with ben bernanke. what kind of a job do you think ben bernanke has done? >> i think ben, like everyone in the crisis has done what he thinks is right and i think he was heroic during the crisis. i worry now, though, that he's continuing these very accommodating monetary policies which have, i think, tremendous risk and there's just no evidence that they do much good for our domestic economy. >> so you don't like qe3? >> i think it's a very bad idea. inflation risk and the incentives to take risks are significant. >> former fdic chairman sheila bair. >>> we'll be right back. when it comes to getting my family to eat breakfast, i need all the help i can get. i tell them, "come straight to the table." i say, "it's breakfast time, not playtime."

you're going to see it pick up especially thanks to ben bernanke and 50-year lows on interest rates, hole ri cow. and a lot of those home-building stocks, my god, they're up 900, 200% -- 100, 200%. david: i've got to argue with you on one point, do you really think a two-tenths of a percent drop is going to get people to buy houses? cheryl: i actually think that you are going to see, finally, those numbers begin to take hold as far as sales go because consumer confidence is beginning to rebound, and we all know that a piece of housing wealth in your portfolio if you're a homeowner -- david: okay. these, by the way, just as i'm about to refer to them, ernie's going to put it back up on the screen. there are the home builders, and hovnanian, i think it was over 6%, so it's coming off its lows. but, again, as cheryl rightly points out, the highs -- these stocks have just been zooming ahead. we had uri hovnanian a month ago, and he was ecstatic. thank you very much, cheryl, i'll try to do you justice. let's switch to nicole petallides now and turn to oil which is seeing another down day
: by the way, governor, ben bernanke was talking about it yesterday. recession, whether we're in one or not. he of course said no. other people, economist david malpass and others say we may actually be in recession right now. did you ask that of your executives or do they have a consensus whether we're in one or going towards one? >> we didn't ask it that way. we ask every quarter what do they think gdp will be. this is the last time we ask for 2012. they dropped from 2.1 to 1.9 growth. you saw official revision in the last quarter all the way down to 1.3. what is bothering families, family incomes dropped four consecutive years. 8% over the last four years. home values are still suffering in so many areas around the country. i think for families they know somebody in the family. the extended family is laid off unemployed looking for work. they don't feel so good about their own circumstances. their confidence is shaken but more importantly the company that might hire them is wondering what are the rules? can i go out and hire? can i invest. we have lot of work to do. we would like to increase
. my point here, carl, is don't fight ben bernanke. if he came out and said, ladies and gentlemen, me and mr. drogy and i want people to buy stewed prunes, everybody should listen carefully. you may think it's wrong, but i sure would not go out and short stewed prunes on that idea. that's the problem that a lot of people are having. a lot of people are underperforming the market because their ideologies are getting in the way. >> thank you. let's get another capital markets op-ed. gary, talk a little politics. >> we'll get to that in a second. i steered clear of politics for quite some time. but let me talk about a cool breeze about what's happened. think back to mid-august. we did that informal survey. we asked people what would be the most important factor for the equity markets in 2012. 65% said it was going to be the election, if you remember. it has not been the case since mid-august. and as e we said all along, it's been about central banks. i do think that's going to change. i think politics will once again become something that has an impact on the equity markets. that it will
ben bernanke is pushing for higher inflation. is his real inflation target not 2%, but like 4%, 5%? if he could wave a magic wand, would he do that? >> they could have a secret vote. it would be in excess of three, for sure at least in the near term. the fed told us they would do whatever it takes to get what they want. they haven't exactly told us what they do or what they want. >> all right. what they want is a lower unemployment rate, isn't that fair? >> right. but they have lower unemployment in the price stability. what's going to happen is you're going to get fomc participants litigating the issue in public. like charlie plaszer yesterday talking about how policy won't be effective and charlie evans today talking about -- >> but they always do that. bernanke, that board is all obama appointees. and it's the liberal left keynesian board. it's an inflationist board. you as great economist and forecaster, right now the inflation numbers, they don't look scary at all. cpi, so forth, commodity prices, none of that stuff is booming. what do you think is the earliest time? a year f
it comes up federal reserve of washington, d.c. my theory is ben bernanke knows where jimmy hoffa is. come clean, mr. bernanke. let's setting this once and for all. >> the feds on line 2 for bob. >> it impressed me people didn't know who jimmy hoffa was. there's going to be a time i'm going to have to explain to people who o.j. simpson was. >> time goes by. >> unbelievable. very depressing. >> we can find o.j. we haven't been able to find the real killers yet though apparently. >> i'll leave it at that. >>> in one of the best tweet smackdowns ever, oreo recently asked followers if they had ever brought cookies into a movie theater. yes, i have. which prompted this response from amc theaters. "not cool, cookie. a reference to its no food policy. oreo quickly fired back. fair enough but don't hate the player, hate the game. and back and forth it went with amc's answer game on, oreo. game on. jane and bob, what do you think? this kind of social engagement help or hurt the brands themselves. jane? >> i think it helps very much. particularly amc theaters which has twice as many followers on twi
that effectively globally central banks have gone all in with quantitative easing. imagine you're ben bernanke or mervyn king and you've just announced unlimited qe and risk assets start selling off. i would suspect they'll increase the amount of qe they're doing. so to some extent risk premium should come down. >>. >> it's hard to prove a negative. based on our reporting, we are not able to confirm, not getting any indications that temasek is looking to sell its stake or that there would be any buyers even if they were. so we wouldn't have run that story. >> more bradley then what is the sense to his point about uk banks potentially having more up side, maybe the cost of capital comes down then, are investors missing a beat, are they too pessimistic? the risk factors here just stack up and stack up and stack up. >> my track record at predicting stock movement is just awful, but i would say one of the interesting things is just regulatory uncertainty. and we saw with standard chartered a month or two ago, barclays, hsbc, rbs seems like it's coming up soon. >> thanks for that. that's it for tod
and that usually is a combination that the head of the federal reserve and ben bernanke and the new york fed and the treasury secretary so this is my statistically insignificant survey of wall street executives and who is in running for this job. jack lew is inside the white house and white house chief of staff pretty high marks. they think he is the most likely guy to be treasury secretary according to the people i talk to. major wall street ceos and the executive suite players i deal with. to comes after where it gets interesting the names that are bounced around erskine bowles from north carolina considered a moderate to conservative democrat bonn the president's deficit reduction committee with alan simpson and pretty good and we should point out he is there too but the president ignored a lot of his -- [talking over each other] >> he is seen as a guy who can bring democrats and republicans like him. the other guy out there whose name is bounced around and bounced around for four years is the ceo of black rock. i consider him a friend. the upside to larry is clearly there is no smarter g
of monetary policy. ben bernanke has said that we have an unemployment rate that is way too high. he has proposed a way that he thinks would address that. do you think he is doing a good job and that this latest thing is in support of this economic growth and demand? >> they have better economic performance than this for monetary is criticized. there's a strong thought in this country that people on campaigns or associated with the executive branch do not comment on specific monetary actions of the fed. this is so important to the economic health of this country. i would say that nothing it has been helpful at all for the professional republicans. i think this is bad for the short term. >> i think there is a difference between politicizing in having an honest policy debate. i think the federal reserve's actions, and i have known that bernanke for a long time, i understand where he is coming from. i think that the fed's policy actions have exposed as to very little upside. i think it is absolutely almost patriotic to have a policy debate about whether it is a good idea to do what he is do
the times you've been there in the past. we have talked about ben bernanke an awful lot since qe-3, and larry, you think there's a bigger message there. >> i do. and we were somewhat critical of the decision. but i don't think anyone should be critical of ben bernanke's performance. i can't think of anybody who has physically done more for the country. i mean, those were 18, 20, 21-hour days. the guy has made a tremendous sacrifice on his family, on himself personally, and i do think it's important that for the country to grow up about this, it's fine to disagree about the policy, but he takes personal attacks from both the right and left, and i think they're totally unjustified. and i think we should actually, you know, pay him a tribute. i think he's making a great sacrifice and we need to salute him and people like him. >> you know, i think i'd agree with that. >> i totally agree with that. i give president bush credit for appointing chairman bernanke, and i give president obama tremendous credit for reappointing him. again, just like larry said, people can agree or disagree, yo
